Tips to Extend the Life of Your Shoes

When you need to stretch your dollars, extending the life of shoes makes sense. Your shoes are an investment and you need to get the most from that investment.


Did you know that the average man will take about 8,000 steps in a day? If he weighs 170 pounds, the daily force that accumulates on his feet is 1,000 tons. It makes sense to spend a few extra dollars for shoes that will give you the support you need. Shoes made with better quality materials are better for your feet. They are longer lasting and with the proper care and maintenance can last for years.

Here at Edgewood Drive Shoe Repair we offer high quality Tauer & Johnson made to order footwear. It is made especially for you. You choose the style, the kind of leather, the color of leather, and the soles. We measure your foot length, width, and girth; have you step into an impression box and send those exact measurements to Tauer & Johnson. They choose the last (the form on which the shoe is made) that best fits those measurements for your left and right foot separately. Check out their website or call us for a free catalog.
